Supposed to be okay, but the trigger and stock aren't reputed to be the best ( according to various articles ) . I checked one out at a gun show over the weekend and it seemed pretty nice given the dollar amount, but yes the stock had a sharp mold ridge and the trigger seemed a bit "stiff '.

I've owned a Stevens 200 in .243.  I don't know what you paid but here's my opinion. 


The Stevens 200 is nothing but a pre-AccuTrigger Savage with a different name & gray injection mold plastic stock.  The triggers aren't terrible but usually require some tweeking to get them nice, light & crisp.  The stock is functional but really doesn't bring much value to the rifle.  It's perfect if you're using as a "truck gun" or a heavy brush beater rifle as you won't care about scratching up or marring a stock that costs maybe $20 to replace.  Where the rifle shines is in the accuracy department.  My particular rifle and the 2-3 others I've been able to shoot were ALL MOA in terms of accuracy.  They shoot very good and are reliable in feed and function.  Another nice feature of the Stevens (and all of Savage's hunting rifle lineup) is the ability to convert barrel & caliber.  You can replace the bolt head for $20, pick up a new barrel for $150, install everything yourself (you must be able to properly set headspace when changing a barrel, however) and go from a 30/06 to a .300 Mag,, 6.5x284, .260 Remington, etc., etc. 


My overall opinion is that they are great rifles for the price.  They'll put meat in the freezer and you don't have to worry about babying it in the woods or in the truck...
